albeit pessimistic talks and discussions on how modern anime has degressed in value recently, 2010 has otherwise shown and proven that there's still light and hope in the medium for as far as fall 2010 concerns. many has blamed the constant / ongoing churning of 'moe anime' [ as how they chose to name it ] as the ultimate culprit behind the so-called 'dark age of anime' [ as of now ]; but that of course were just another plate of their shallow excuses spiced with their baseless paranoia and their reluctance to deeply sip and savor before spitting things out.
recently it has becoming somewhat of a trend for cute and fluffy outward presentation of an anime to be misjudged and hastily marked as immature, despicable and lacking in all the seriousness, befitting only to be treated in the likes of the crap tier - much in the sense of 'judging the book by its cover'. further on, this seemingly negative trend has been going so viral-ly rampant within the [ english-speaking ] fandom that it later sparked on the initiative of few optimistic anifan / blogger to stand up and gather about a coalition in defense of their one belief that all anime should be treated in all equality, regardless of design and genre.
another distinct problem that has been plaguing the fandom ever since recently is the growing abundance of the third sect - that is the hipster / hater camp who often goes about trolling and inciting drama, most notably between the 'elitist' and the 'casualite' [ the latter having been referred to exclusively by the third sect as 'moefags' ] camps. this third sect are most notoriously made of those who has trivial to very little understanding over the medium, as well as their tendency and proneness to be inducted into the cool crowd so to extend their online reputation / presence for the sake of being 'cool and superior', though in essence they aren't very much different from those marked as poseurs / hypocrites :3
just as much as how the outside world were constantly plagued with political turmoil whatsoever, so does the anifandom and its ongoing civil disputes that has been going around since who knows when - almost to the point of tearing itself apart; and it'll be wise of me to say that should this state of mudfights continues forth, the anifandom will certainly be walking itself on the plank of self destruction sooner in the very near future |3
